Recipe Ingredients for Carrot, apple & raisin cake

225 g self raising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
5 tbsp vegetable oil
1 orange, grated zest + 4 tbsp juice
140 g light muscovado sugar
140 g carrot, finely grated
1 apple, peeled, cored and grated
85 g raisins
50 g pumpkin seeds

Recipe Directions for Carrot, apple & raisin cake

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160c fan/180c/Gas 4.

  2. Grease a 20cm round cake tin (alternatively, I have done this as cup cakes/muffins and it works well).

  3. Mix flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in bowl.

  4. In separate bowl mix oil, juice and sugar. Add juice mixture to flour along with grated carrot, apple, orange zest, raisins and seeds and stir until really well mixed.

  5. Spoon into prepared tin and bake for 50min to 1 hour until cake pulls away from side.

  6. If doing smaller cup cakes then bake for 18 to 20 mins depending on your oven.
